Technology

As the only designated technology high school for girls in NSW, our school is consistently implementing innovative and inspiring learning strategies to enhance and support the learning for our students.

Since 1989, when the school was designated a "Technology High" there has been a consistent focus on embracing the use of technology for teaching and learning. Our school's vision is to "Educate Girls for a Technological Future". The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) directions in education were explored and it was decided to introduce iPads to all students. This has become embedded in our school's practice.

The school recognises the importance of innovative technologies as a way to build capacity for teaching and learning. The technologies used in the school are authentic and relevant to our learning community.

Students are able to access their learning through iTunes U courses, Showbie Pro, Moodle, Google Classroom and online interactive textbooks and learning resources. As a result students are always up to date with their learning.

Extra curricula activities offered at the school include:

Code Club, Makerspace, Gifted and Talented Club, and Robotics club – Extra curricula programs designed and created to encourage girls into the Sciences, Engineering and Information Technology industries. They emphasis collaborative work, critical thinking and computational thinking skills.
